OK, enough of the old master thinkers, lets' get down to some hard science. Just heard from Dr Godley, who is directing my care and the various chemical concoctions that have been sent my way. Her word is that I'm absolutely on schedule. After a biopsy of a couple of lesions the science is saying there are no cancer cells in the lesions tested. That's the first goal- get rid of the cancerous cells that were causing the expression.
Now, I simply need to wait and see if my body will rebuild white cells on its own, stay clear of infectious situations and get as healthy as one can get in a limited circumstance. I've got 10 - 13 days before I can go home and take a rest from the tan walls and institutional green linoleum floors and rigid schedule. So, this is the beginning of a sprint to the end of phase I. My job is to stay clear of infection, keep my mind busy and make my bed every day. The love and care from outside has been (and is) wonderful and I wouldn't be as well as I am without all of your help.
